God lukt av krydder og kaffe. Litt skum rundt kanten. En god smak av krydder, kaffe og sjokolade. MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2005
Bottle. Nice, malty aroma. Fresh-ground coffee. Very dark brown colour, soy-like. No head. Nice flavour, a lot like the aroma, malty and coffeeish. jonas (7588) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 4, 2004
Because the Badebier is one of the ingredients in this brew I though it would be a good idea to taste them alongside each other.
All in all the brew retains the same qualities known from the other Neuzelle Schwarzbier: Its heavily roasted and quite sweet.
However compared to the badebeer there seems to be a very sligth vegetable aroma (its either the algae or my mind is making this up).
Color os the same red black as the Badebier however the head is less stable.
It is quite evident that the beer is thinner, and the lighter body adds some sharp edges to the roasted tasteprofile. It tastes a bit clayish/saltier as well.
It lacks the creamy milkchocolate aftertaste of the badebier, but the lightness makes it easier to drink and more refreshing.
Did it work? Well I don't know, but since I both drank a Bathbier and this one, some will probably claim that I am both cleaner and living longer now....

very dark brown colour with a ruby hue, no foam left, toasted chocolaty aroma with notes of vanilla; medium-bodied, fresh and lively palate, some sweetness and a moderately long toasty caramelish and chocolaty aftertaste Koelschtrinker (20411) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 8, 2011
Im zunehmend malzigen Antrunk werden nach kurzer Eingewöhnungsphase kaffeeartige Röstnoten freigesetzt, die das Bier von nun an leiten. Sie wirken pur und rein und da kein anderes Aroma stört können sie durchaus begeistern. Das Malz weitet sich zudem untertönig aus und bedeckt so nach kurzer Zeit sämtliche Regionen, neben den deutlichen Röstnoten kommen so auch dezente Schokoladennuancen zum Vorschein. Dezent herber Abgang, der weiter vom Malz dominiert wird. Vollmundig malziges Bier, das aber nicht die Intensität eines Stous hat. Gut! 8/11/11/12/5/11

(bottle) Deep dark body with a small and brown creamy layer. Intense nose of roasted malts, toffee and a mineral element. Soft sweet aromatic taste of malts and mocha with a lasting coffee, liquorice and a bit salty finish. Very tasty and enjoyable, but lacks a bit body. BeerBiker (1415) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2007
[Sampled in 2005.] Beautiful darkcreamy look in an almost black atmosphere. Notes of some smoke, typical schwarzbierflavor, fruit, caramel and wateryness. An okay beer! Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2007
Well, since I have turned 50 and then some and like beer, it is natural to try to combine interests! So I opened an Anti Aging beer, hoping for miracles.... The head disappears very quickly on this almost black schwartzbier. The aroma is malty in a "hvidtøl" kind of way and it has notes of berries. The mouth feeling is rather smooth and the flavour has notes of berries (raspberry among others), a bit of licorice and some other notes, that is hard to pinpoint. But I do know the aroma of spirulina, and I think I can recognize it in the taste. It’s a mild and delicious beer with an sufficient bitter finish - and I guess it takes more than one to get results in the anti-aging front.... yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2011
Bottle. A big, off-white to light beige head leaving lacings sits on top of a clear, chestnut body. Unusual aroma, reminiscent of raisins, licorice, bread crust, yeast hints and something I can’t recall. Unusual but quite nice. Caramel, raisins, something slighlty spiced and herbal and some yeast on the nose. Medium body, dryish and pleasantly carbonated. A really unusual one, but I like it quite much. 110624 BeerViking (4798) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2012
50cl bottle from Bierpost.de, black brown with almost no head, malt and a little coffee on the nose, dry bitter malty body with roast and faintly mineral notes. Hints of chocolate, green vegetation and spicy hops. A nice schwartz.
